A total of 20,000 oysters are to be introduced into the sea near Glenmorangie's Highland home, as part of the single malt whisky's project to restore oyster reefs fished to extinction a century ago.

The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) has awarded £6 million to investigate the effects that potentially hazardous chemicals used by humans are having on UK habitats and wildlife.

Researchers in Indonesia have documented the first-ever sighting of twin Tapanuli Orangutan infants. The sighting is significant as Tapanuli Orangutans, a species that was only discovered in 2017, are the rarest ape in the world and face extinction. The immediate threat to the species comes from a Chinese-funded hydroelectric project which will further fragment the forest where the last remaining Tapanuli Orangutans live.

Massive scale mining the deep sea for metals used in smartphones and green technologies such as copper, cobalt, nickel, manganese and silver may move a step closer this year as the countries that are members of the International Seabed Authority (ISA) continue to draft regulations to allow commercial deep-sea mining. As envisaged, such mining would be on a scale that will dwarf any mining undertaken on land.

Two dolphin attacks on harbour porpoises, a rare sight to actually observe in British waters, have been recorded by local photographers, Jamie Muny and Alister Kemp, close to the shore of Chanonry Point in the Moray Firth, NE Scotland!

Chris Wright, Operations Manager for SOCOTEC’s Waste and Environmental Management Team, outlines how they manage the ecology of Britain's railways without compromising its day to day running.

British freshwaters are heavily contaminated with neonicotinoid insecticides, with half of the sites monitored in England exceeding chronic pollution limits and two rivers being acutely polluted.

'Omnipresent' signs demonstrating the effects of human impact on England's landscape have been revealed by researchers from the University of Leicester.

Many animal species suffer reduced reproductive success in urban habitats, despite wide-spread supplementation of breeding and feeding opportunities. In some years, the breeding success of city birds is devastatingly low. Biologists have now shown conclusively that in urban blue tits, reduced breeding success is linked to poor nestling diet and in particular to scarcity of caterpillars, their preferred nestling food.

Flower-rich habitats are key to maintaining the vital pollination services of bumblebees, results from a large DNA study of wild bumblebee populations has revelaed, and this will help farmers and policy makers manage the countryside more effectively to provide for these vital but declining pollinators.
